LIFE PLATFORM MEETING ON AIR QUALITY: ABATING URBAN EXPOSURE TO AIR POLLUTANTS

September 26 - September 27

Event Navigation

The AIRUSE and IMPROVE LIFE projects hosted the LIFE Platform Meeting on Air Quality that took place last  26-27 September 2017, under the title: Abating urban exposure to air pollutants.

The International LIFE Platform reviewed the state of the art strategies and measures to have better air in the cities where we live. For this, the discussion was established to firstly know the current situation, the problems we are facing, and the available measures. Speakers from different areas presented their views on this matter aiming to prepare helpful guidelines for all European cities.

The meeting was structured in 3 sessions: Urban Air Quality Measures, Citizen Exposure While Commuting, and Models and Tools for Air Quality Management. Topics covered from measures to abate pollution from road traffic, industry, domestic and commercial heating, to shipping, construction/demolition work, and airports.

AIRUSE project demonstrated mitigation measures to reduce particulate matter (PM) levels, from diverse sources, to within acceptable limits.

IMPROVE LIFE is providing a benchmark study with the aim of improving subway air quality in Barcelona.

Many other LIFE projects also present their findings during the meeting:

The meeting was organized in cooperation with the Directorate-General for Environment (DG ENV); the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) and the European Commission. The NEEMO external monitoring team provided the logistic support and AXA research fund provided support for the meeting.
